need to protect their environment. we have a strict quarantine system to protect the integrity of the environment. forty years on, it's still a class-a nature reserve. it's our job to look after them. ...it's my job to look after it. ♪ >> they are being called superstorms. fueled by changing climate, higher temperatures, and rising sea levels. >> climate change is real. it's here. it's going to happen again. >> people and cities once safe. now in the eye of the fury. >> i see the weather changing. absolutely. >> is this the era of the superstorm? >> water level is rising substantially. >> and are we ready? >> if this wall had been here -- >> for the next one? >> i've been telling everybody, the big flood is coming. we better start building the ark. >> living near the ocean, there's always that chance that the ocean is going to come take away everything that you've got. but never did i imagine that this was going to happen to me and my family and my community. >> even now, given all that has happened to him and his family, it is still hard for nick camerada to understand it al
, the federal reserve creating this environment where there's few alternatives and it's not necessarily driven by fundamentals. so do fundamentals not matter. >> the fundamentals are still good. we're still looking at fairly attractive, s&p 500, only about 13. i think the fundamentals are there, and the fed hasn't gott gone away yet. the fed hasn't taken await punch bowl yet. >> maria, i would just add that i think earnings have been really very impressive, and that's the big difference in my mind this year versus last year. in addition to all this stimulus, global stimulus, earnings are actually a lot better. i know the expectations were low, but no one was thinking 6% to 7% earnings growth and, okay, fine, revenues are growing at 2.2%, but that tells me margins are actually holding up which is the other case that everyone thought margins were going to roll over, the resiliency in the face of what we just went through in the fourth quarter and i think that's actually very impressive and i think the stocks will continue to work higher as earnings continue to improve. >> you also have to mentio
environment -- we did an extensive analysis to try to make sense why we have had the problem and have had so long. host: if you would like to join the conversation from eastern and central time zones -- mountain and pacific -- and if you are a health professional -- laudan aron, here are the numbers, and we see where the united states ranks in life expectancy compared to other countries. who in the study are the comparison points and how the u.s. to? guest: the panel basically compared the health outcomes in the united states to 16 other high-income democracies. it western europe, canada, australia, japan. basically countries we consider our peers in a number of the means. we ranked dead last in life expectancy among males and the comparison group and next-to- last for females. life expectancy at birth is a cumulative indicator of multiple causes of death. but as we can see, we are not doing very well. host: the disadvantage appears to exist across all ages and demographics. do you have a sense of why? guest: well, one of the real striking findings was how many different domains we are falli
and complimentary because we have not have unnecessarily redundant capabilities, particularly in the environment we have on the fiscal front. >> this is an area that needs a lot of attention and oversight. i get concerned at times that the ic on one hand and d.o.d. on the other hand think they're coming from separate originators of funding and ultimately they have to be within the greater budget constraints. my time is running down. your background and most of you are expertise is on the ct side. clearly the challenge we have is we see emerging threats from parts of the world that were not on the front line, we see disruptions through the middle east, where perhaps in retroprospect we didn't have the right coverage on social media and the streets. how do we make sure we get within the fiscal constraints, that we don't go complete ct and make sure we have the coverage we need, the capabilities we need and the worldwide coverage we need with your approach, particularly with your background. >> counterterrorism is going to be a priority area for the intelligence and c.i.a. for many years to come. just
. the condo market in the major environments is on fire. melissa: really? dottie, do you agree with that? yeah, real estate is back, buy, buy, buy. i heard that before. tell me in a convincing way. >> no, it's back. in fact, new york a year and a half ago, but back across the country, and there's also a shortage of inventory. you have to buy it and buy it quick. melissa: that's a good sales pitch. madison, in l.a., things flying off the lot there, i was going to say "shelf," but there's not the shelf. >> flying off the cove, yes. they are flying, and the market has taken off exciting, this year, so far, we had a big sale of $75 million in malibu with a foreign buyer. it's taking off to a good start. melissa: ridiculous. jeff, let me ask you, when i look at the lot of the markets that are on fire right now, it really concerns me because it looks like all the same problems that we saw last time around, for example, one of the markets you think is going to do the best is phoenix. i know zillow projectses prices in phoenix could be up 8.5% next year. that makes me nervous. >> the reality is that t
. >> but they've created this environment for this to happen. what do you mean? that's a risk decision that companies are making for some reason they've decided they need to operate with massive and huge cash balances, okay? and for whatever reason, there have been an absence of investors like iron horn who said, give me back the cash. find a way to redistribute it. i don't know, bob, in terms of macroeconomic development -- >> i think some of the corporate cash comes from firms that have made money and they don't feel like taking risk in this environment. apple is the technology company and i can understand apple's view that they have freedom of cash on the balance sheet. some of this is complicated. some of the cash is overseas, they bring it home, thee incur some tax liability. cash on your balance sheet is freedom. it's freedom from bankers. >> we're going to slip in a quick break. bob, you're going to be with us for the rest of the hour. and i'm going to send it back to pebble beach and the one and only becky quick. >> when we come back, we're talking about putting money to work b
to be a safe haven environment for those who want to invest in real estate or buy a place here, to go shopping or hit the trendy restaurants or bars or a show. we're going to have a look for you the next hour of varney about two and a half million dollar apartment, what you get for that kind of money and who is buying these places? manhattan's real estate market is booming. it's a seller's market right now. what does it take? we're going to have the answers to all of that with you, charles, coming up at 10:30 on varney. charles: i can't wait. sometimes i stand in central park and look at the apartments, are there that many rich people out there? i can't wait, sandra, thanks a lot. >> exactly. charles: don't talk about home builders stocks not necessarily on varney, but they've been soaring in the past year, nicole, i know you've got one that's more than doubled. >> i thought you were going to say a manhattan the apartment not everyone is rich in manhattan. >> are you serious? >> yeah, i'm serious, come on, let's get to the stock and we've talked about the housing recovery and what we have seen
for the environment schemes that they put in place. let me deal with each of those points. the section of the budget that includes spending on research, innovation and university funding is up by over a third. the money is handed out on the basis of quality, so britain's universities are particularly well placed to benefit. we have ensured that structural funds will continue to flow to our less well-off regions, and britain's share will remain broadly the same, at around 11 billion. while we have cut spending on the common agricultural policy overall, we have protected the flexibility that will allow us to direct funds to support both the environment and the livelihoods of our farming communities. overall, this is a better-framed budget in terms of growth, jobs and competitiveness. it is disappointing that administrative costs are still around 6% of the total, but overall spending on the cap will fall by 13% compared with the last seven-year budget. research and development, and other pro-growth investment, will now account for 13% rather than 9% of the total budget. reform of eu spending is a long-
these wild storms and damage to our environment and our economy. and he made this a very clear priority. i've organized a joint task force, and we wrote a letter to the president saying, in light of his comments, the administration needs to develop a plan of actions that they can take without congress, and actions, of course, we can try to get congress to support, but we can't wait for congress to act when we have a large number of republicans who deny there's even a problem of climate change. and one of the things that the president can do is to regulate through the clean air act at the environmental protection agency to reduce the emissions from future power plants, which is what e.p.a. has already proposed, but also existing power plants. there's technology. there's ability to do it. and the president needs to move forward and enact those kinds of regulations that will reduce these kinds of greenhouse gases. host: what industry specifically is this going to impact the most? guest: well, it will impact the utilities, which provide the power plants for electricity. many of them still use
and are not in favor of gun control. if you grew up in a city, an urban environment with more guns and crime, you're probably less in favor of guns and more in favor of gun control. if that holds true, there is not going to be a huge majority in congress for gun-control. seems like it will be pretty split. there will be a lot of people that are gun owners. host: including democrats? caller: including democrats, although a smaller number. some of the ones who were gun owners said that boehner is in favor of gun control. we talked to a congressman from minnesota. he said he was a gun owner, but that he believed that some gun controls, particularly background checks, are important. to maintain safety of guns. there were 120 republicans that own guns, only 46 democrats told us that they own guns. 76% of congress answered our questions. host: why did people not answer your question? caller: they gave a variety of reasons. we had about 60 people total applying by saying that they -- declining by saying that would not talk about it. several said that it was safety reasons, that they did not think it wa
a lot of people are struggling without power. if newark and think surrounding environments survive power outages the biggest thing is to get the roads clear and safe so as people move about we don't see the kind of accidents that often come with icy conditions. again, the most urgent thing i could ask people to do is stay indoors as much as you can tomorrow and be compassionate and check on your neighbors, check on the elderly or people shut in. if you go out to shovel your driveway, see if there are people who may need assistance. the storm is tough but when we pull together we are a lot tougher. >> we are thinking of all of you guys especially those hit so hard from superstorm sandy and now you have this massive snowstorm. before i let you go to bed, we all know you cory booker, hands-on mayor. do you anticipate having to help out yourself if necessary tomorrow? >> yeah. i think we all need to take that attitude. obviously my primary concern is working with my command staff to do what is necessary to get the streets clear. i always go out with a group of folks, with shovels and other s
of this working environment. they had several different workstations where they could see the trains coming in and out of the station and further up the line. completely destroyed. need to be replaced and rebuilt. >> the force of the water so great, it even destroyed escalators designed to last 40 years. >> the actual force of the water coming down the escalator lifted the landing plates from position. the pit itself still has several feet of water standing in it. these are one of our escalators that's a total loss. >> so this is going to have to come out altogether? >> come out and be replaced. >> the destruction here is just a part, a big part, but just a part of the pounding that the infrastructure system took as a result of superstorm sandy. just imagine, if you will, what happened to the electrical grid on the eastern seaboard. >> the northeast, obviously, took a real beating as a result of superstorm sandy. and i think it did reveal a number of weaknesses. among them, questions have come up fairly, i think, whether the utilities really did a good job overall. >> clark gellings knows m
commodity prices dropped worldwide over the last 100 years. the american environment, miserable during the 1970s. we had acid rain smog. our rivers and lakes terribly polluted. 40 years later, population has increased by 50%. the environment is much smarter and more sustainable. >> jonathan, your last chapter is "how to make babies." do you doubt that people don't sflm. >> you know, a lot of people -- it's a complicated subject. >> i know. it is a complicated subject. it's more than just having sex. you have a bigger plan in mind. thank you, jonathan last. >> thank you. >>> and gabby giffords made a plea to congress last week to do something about gun violence. this morning, the young man who helped save giffords, remember him, writes a note to self. daniel hernandez jr., next on "cbs this morning." >>> president obama is among those who consider daniel hernandez jr. a hero. hernandez is the 20-year-old intern who helped save congresswoman gabby giffords during the deadly mass shooting in arizona two years ago. this morning, he writes a letter of advice for our ongoing series, "note to
government a stable environment for long term political economic and social development. however, as we reported, that the program had not met its primary goal of extending legitimacy of afghan government, nor has it brought the government closer to the people. in fact, my auditors found each the eight progresses experiences dramatic increases in the level of violence between 2006 and 2010. although the effects of the lgcd program on security level cannot be isolated, violence data useful indicator stability. this date certainly suggested that the program was not achieving its intended goals. likewise, in july of last year, we issued a report on the afghan infrastructure program or a.i.p. which congress created resources for large scale infrastructure projects in afghanistan. we found that five of the seven fiscal year 2011 projects were behind schedule. some of these projects may not achieve the positive coin effects for several years if at all. we also identified some instances where the projects resulted in the adverse effects. because they either created an expectation gap or lagged
already have. some nations are creating environments so attractive to global manufacturers that companies have relocated much of their activities on foreign soil. our global trade imbalance is do growing as we export less and import more. and today the imbalance includes many high-tech products. other nations are changing their policy to become more competitive and so should we. fortunately blazing trails in to new frontiers is what america has always done best. to set the stage for the congress and to understand where america is heading, we have very knowledgeable witnesses testifying before us today. each of them understands both the public and private research and development efforts as well as where our global competitors are headed. members of the committee have the opportunity to work together on policies that will help america stay competitive. and today's hearing is the first step. that concludes my opening statement. and gentlewoman from texas is recognized. >> thank you very much. for holding the hearing and thank you for yesterday's bipartisan retreat. i hope all of us will lis
they are supportive of them controlled than they were back in december of 1993. even the environment looks different. even more important than that, it is really that moderate seat held by democrats do not belong to democrats any more. do belong to very conservative republicans. seats that were held by moderate republicans are now held by democrats. that makes the democrats all that much -- that makes the dynamic all that more problematic. if you are a gun owner that it's a certain democratic profile, that makes it more likely that you are actually eight republicans. host: host: you wrote about this. ece. is amy's pi guest: we still have to do it immigration reform. host: biscuit the viewer is involved -- let's get the viewers involved. caller: we should be able to vote on our own gun control and immigration policies. host: what do you mean by that? caller: you can vote whether you want immigration control, yes or no. enforce our laws we already have. the american people can vote. the details can be worked out by congress. host: do you think the electorate moves forward on these issues by voting for
in the environment. things like no budget, no pay. bipartisan feeding, not always a nation divided even with our leaders. i want to assure a video with you with congressman jack kingston of georgia. let's see what he had to say. >> the thing i really like is that i have to sit next to jim moran. i never really liked him, but it turns out we are friends. i would have walked if it weren't for my arch enemy nemesis. that is the problem, you start liking people. those kinds of relationships can take place because what happens in washington, when you decide you don't like somebody, something like this brings you together and you find out you were the one that was wrong. this is a great group with lots of potential and i am behind it. [applause] >> that is a great message from a republican from georgia about a relationship he has with a democrat and virginia. i know that the congressman sent his best. he plans to be here but he has a 103 degree fever. we need him back in congress and in the working group to make sure we are solving those problems. for the next little bit of time, we are going to get t
for what they believe. >> it's how you teach an old dog new tricks. >> most of us are in our environment how we were raised, and we learn from them. i have said there's five promises every adult should make. the first is a child should have a loving and caring adults in their life and the second is they should have a healthy start to read the child should have an education. the child should have a safe place. the second one is a promise you cannot teach. they should grow to be loving and caring adult and give something back. the usually emulate that who they were raised by and have their fellow suit. in the political process it is hard for anyone of you looking today to try to find a hero that says i'm willing to make a vote. hopefully we will give political leaders and policy makers the courage to say i am willing to sit down and talk. i'm not worried about guilt by conversation. even though i might disagree or think that you are not right for the left field i want to hear what you are coming from. maybe we can find some commonality. i am going to make a tough vote and if someone says y

it, a very negligible impact on the environment. if you look at the developing countries, china india and others, they are now the largest polluters in the world by far. >> oh, yeah. >> to the extents that's what you are trying to get at the united states is a country. it's not a planet. on the other handy, if we unilaterally impose these things t would have a devastating impact okay economics, depending upon which measure we are talking about >> bill: that is an idiotic statement. what the do you think it will have on miami when on miami when it's under water? of all states, florida should be leading the fight to do something about climate change. >> that's going to be the first state that goes. >> breaks off and drops into the ocean. >> the keys, gone. miami, gone. the whole fishing industry the tourist industry, the whole thing, gone. and then he said, oh man, we can't do anything about climate change. it costs us too much money. costs us too much money not to. joey out in chicago. hey, joey. what do you say? good morning. >> good morning, eve
